HP Stream 7 – 99 dollar tablet with Windows 8.1 – Hands on [ENGLISH] Updated on February 12, 2015 By Windows Guy 25 Comments HP Stream 7 – 99 dollar tablet with Windows 8.1 – hands on mobilegeeks.com We finally got to check out the new HP Stream 7, which is available for… Video Rating: 4 / 5 Related Games On Windows 8.1 Articles By Windows Guy 25 Comments TylerGaming97 February 12, 2015 I think most people who would buy this tablet already have a Desktop or laptop that they use and just want this for basic things, as it is more portable. Like my mid 2009 Macbook may have better specs than this, but I’d much rather carry this tablet around school than my MacBook because it adds 5 pounds to my bag, which really slows you down. I could see this being a thing with businesses or people who travel a lot. Aaronage February 12, 2015 A device with disappointment written all over it. You can get away with running Android on those specs, but not full-fat x86 Windows. A 3000mah battery won’t last long running Windows on a (relatively) power hungry Atom chip. It’s poor value, you’re better off with something like a Tesco Hudl 2 (£129) or HiSense Sero (£80 to £100) Rabolisk February 13, 2015 $99 in the US 129 Euros in Germany Who the hell comes up with these dumb pricing ideas?? asdfrozen February 13, 2015 Spend the extra $40 for a WinBook with 2 GB of memory. Neil Gelder February 13, 2015 Loved the comments from people trying to say android is a better more stable os that windows, how I lolled dancingwithczars February 13, 2015 I get a laugh out of people who’ve been using android junk but expect a bargain-basement Windows 8.1 tablet to run like a full-fledged pc. This is for people who want a basic tablet that has Windows 8.1 functionality and networking. It is what it is and looks like it can’t be beat for the price. If you want more, then your gonna have to pay more for something like a Surface. This ain’t no Surface and doesn’t pretend to be a pocket pc. If you have grand delusions of using it as a pc, you’ll be sorely disappointed. Gaius Concord February 13, 2015 Check out the winbook TW801 from microcenter. Almost the same specs, except 2 gigs of ram, all the IO is on one side: and it has hdmi micro (that actually works, not like the thinkpad 8 inch) micro sd card slot, micro usb charging (you can get data over it too) and a full sized USB 3.0 slot. This 8 inch tablet is $140, but i got it open box for $111. This little guy blows away the competition for 8 inch windows 8.1 tablets, and utterly stomps it at the price point. Ive wanted a cheap 8 incher for a while and this one won my heart. ProEvoTV February 13, 2015 I just bought it and get no wifi connection. it tells me that there is no driver installed…. WELL DONE MICROSHIT >_> michael99uk February 13, 2015 @hyylo its a tablet mo*** its for consumption. And windows now have apps like GTA V, Assassin Creed , Sonic Dash , farm ville , Asphalt 8 , Tiny troopers, Modern Combat , Six guns , Talking Angela and co All fully OPTIMIZED for TABLETS. STOP spreading nonsense if u like android buy it, u don’t like windows stop telling people not to buy it you don’t even have the device. Unan1mouz February 13, 2015 The main concern is… Why doesn’t it have a card slot!? Ahmad Afiq February 13, 2015 What’s the difference between the normal one and the signature edition one? any hardware difference? tipoomaster February 13, 2015 I wonder if the 1GB RAM gets in the way of basic tablet uses, ie moderate web browsing, mail, etc. Thinking of these for my parents since they don’t need many apps. Will Frame February 13, 2015 That tramp stamp on the front is just ugly. hyylo February 13, 2015 why would anyone want to purchase a windows tablet. once you install a few programs, virus scanner and the weekly Microsoft updates these tablets will be slow as fu*k. 1337er Realsie February 13, 2015 £129!? Wow. It really is a good deal in the US at $99 (I think that’s about £95; I’m not sure about the current rate). Karly Johnston February 13, 2015 When the same devices sells in the US vs EU it is usually the same number in dollars as in euros but even higher here. So Germans have to pay $161 while I pay $99. It must suck to buy tech in Europe. guitarist766 February 13, 2015 After seeing some gaming, web browsing and other rewiews on this HP I’m fucking impressed by How fast and smooth it is, this will definitely be under my three this year Szabolcs Varga February 13, 2015 99$, rendes Windows 8.1 Marc Woodward February 13, 2015 To reduce battery drain, go into settings & turn off all unnecessary apps running in the background & alerts. I turned everything off on my Dell Venue 8 & it really did have a positive impact on battery drain. Sasha zabyv February 13, 2015 went down to $70 Pinyo Getmanee February 13, 2015 Guys check out Bart baker’s lips are movin. It really describes about what people think of this hp tablet lolz Sonny Burnett February 13, 2015 the best video loud and clear and to the point. thanks so much. psanga1976 February 13, 2015 I got a nexus 7 2nd gen and find it annoying that it can’t play flash or Java. This windows tablet is a good thing, and why have windows taken so long to bring out a cheap tablet? Android is dominating the market. who man 101 February 13, 2015 does it have a mic? if so, what’s the quality on it. thanks cool8man February 13, 2015 This comes with 32GB standard in the US. And there is a memory card slot if you remove the back cover. Comments are closed.
